The GCH Committee is pleased to advise that our new Membership platform on is now live and ready to accept members for 2017.
The new system allows us to collect and manage member information and payments in a more efficient manner, and will significantly cut down on the time being put in by Club Officials in the administration of membership forms and cash payments.
Our annual summer social takes place at Crowe's Bar Bohermore next Saturday, 26th August from 8.00pm We hope to see as many as possible in attendance and finger food will be served. Great way to fuel up after the Claregalway 10K !
This is a great chance to meet and recap all the highlights of the year so far.

We had a great workshop with Liz Egan yesterday evening. Liz led us through some practical exercises with key life skills of goal setting, prioritising and planning. It was superb to have a mix of our youth, senior and masters members learning together.
These were a great complement to the workshop by Karen Weekes in February on applying the mind to maximum effect. The planning templates and advice sheets are available here for all.
